A Lifetime Lived Together


                          Tom Macy


How priceless a lifetime lived together.

Thoughts known before words are spoken.

Tears traded and laughter shared.

Shared trials cementing an ever stronger foundation.

The building blocks of joys experienced. 

Shells of empty doubts rejected.

Water in a parched land.

Strands of two lives weaved into a single tapestry.

Ecstasies kept pure.

Blossoms given to bloom and grow.

Watering, nurturing, and never taking.

Like God spinning off galaxies with his finger.

One is seen the other remembered.

Unity in two names. 

The mountaintop fire of passion. 

The water of mutual admiration.

Growing, ever-changing, the joy of a lifetime lived together.
